Bobbi Kristina: Tyler Perry's visit, Nick Gordon's court case

Bobbi Kristina Brown remains hospitalized at Emory, now more than a week after being found unresponsive and face-down in a bathtub. She's been surrounded by family and friends, including Tyler Perry, who was a huge support to the family at the time of her mother Whitney Houston's death.

BREAKING: Investigation reportedly widens

Bobbi Kristina and her grandmother Cissy Houston in a promotional photo for the Lifetime show the family appeared in for one season after Whitney Houston's death.

While her father, Bobby Brown, grandmother, Cissy Houston, aunt Pat Houston and other relatives have been seen coming and going, Nick Gordon has kept a lower profile. Bobbi Kristina has referred to Nick as her "husband" on social media for the past year or more but both sides of her family dispute that the two were ever legally wed.

Nick had been due in traffic court Monday morning on totally unrelated charges. A scrum of reporters from outlets ranging from CNN to Entertainment Tonight, not to mention a clutch of photo agencies and local broadcast stations, was at Fulton County State Court to capture the action this morning.

The case was continued, though, and Nick's lawyer declined to comment.

Since probate court is located in same general area we checked for a marriage license that would have proved Nick and Bobbi Kristina actually are lawfully married and found none. Of course there are 158 other counties in Georgia (not to mention the rest of the world) where they could possibly have gotten hitched, but they were living in north Fulton County when Bobbi Kristina announced they were married.

There's been no word from Gordon or his representatives disputing the Brown-Houston family assertion that he is not married.
